Optogenetics is a new and rapidly evolving field that combines light control with genetic engineering, allowing conditional regulation of signaling processes with seconds and microns precision. This workshop brings together a broad range of researchers developing and using optogenetic probes with researchers developing related technologies. Specific goals include: 1) Present the latest innovative new genetically-encoded tools and technologies for manipulating biological systems with light; 2) Promote exchange between those developing light-responsive probes and developers of related tools (e.g. biosensors, hardware) that will maximize the power of optogenetics; and 3) Promote the exchange of ideas between optogenetic tool developers and users.
